Delts Summer 2019

Welcome to the City for College Students

 

 

So you're looking for housing, huh? Well we're here for you!

A message from the Summer House Managers:

This summer, Delta Tau Delta fraternity is looking for friendly boarders who want to share our beautiful Back Bay brownstone and all that Boston has to offer. Located on Beacon Street, we are within a few blocks of the Esplanade Greenway, Boston Commons, Fenway Park, Kenmore Square, Newbury Street, the subway, and MIT. We have everything you need to have a fantastic summer!

We provide a comfortable home with open communal spaces and fully furnished rooms. Our boarders will have access to a large charcoal grill, 65 inch TV with hundreds of DirecTV channels, a fully equipped kitchen, and laundry. The luxurious roof deck, which overlooks the Charles River, will also be open for responsible use. Boston's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular are launched from right in front of the house! See this video of last year's show, recorded from our roof deck (taken with a wide-angle lens, so it looks farther than it actually is)! 

We also have a video house tour available upon request :)

Looking forward to meeting you!

FAQ

Is Housing Co-Ed?

Yes! Over the summer, we accept all genders into our house. However, your roommates will all be the same gender unless otherwise requested.

IS THERE AIR CONDITIONING?

Yes! Boston gets pretty hot and humid over the summer, so your price includes a window AC for your room and all utilities. However, we ask that you turn it off if nobody will be in your room for a while, so we can conserve power :).

HOW DO I DO LAUNDRY?

We have 2 washers and 2 dryers in the basement. Over the summer, we will also provide Tide Pods and dryer sheets (within reason). If you're here because don't know how to use a washing machine or dryer, watch this...

WHY SHOULD I LIVE AT DELTS INSTEAD OF ANOTHER FRATERNITY?

Good question! First, we've been doing this for a long time, and we are always willing to work with you to improve our housing. One of our boarders from last year summed it up pretty well:
You get what you pay for: awesome people, awesome views and a short walk to everything! -Summer 2016 Boarder

WHAT DO I DO FOR FOOD?

Back bay has tons of great restaurants, and there is a Trader Joes and Star Market within walking distance of the house to get groceries.
